Matthew Dellavedova goes Ric Flair on Taj Gibson

SHARE Matthew Dellavedova goes Ric Flair on Taj Gibson

Matthew Dellavedova channeled his inner Ric Flair on Tuesday night.

The scrappy Cavs guard tried to put a leg lock on Taj Gibson, but the Bulls forward kicked out of it faster than Dennis Rodman can say, “get outta here, cameraman.”

In the end, no one got hurt, except for the Bulls, who lost an ejected Gibson for the remainder of the game.

But who knows, maybe the Dellavedova leg lock will ultimately be the series’ submission hold on the Bulls.

Dellavedova has more in common with Flair than you think.
